Calvin, As you build the UIA to ATK bridge have you thought about
designing it so that it can eventually be a multiplatform bridge from UIA
to both ATK and MSAA/IA2? This would be similar to what FF3 does, mapping
from the generic nsiAccessible to either ATK or MSAA/IA2 and this is what
OOo will have soon, after the IBM Lotus developed OOo UAAPI to MSAA/IA2
bridge is merged with the existing OOo UAAPI to ATK mapping.
Note that JAWS and Window-Eyes already support MSAA/IA2. I'm not aware of
any Win based UIA ATs so this would be a fast path to providing access to
Have you done the UIA to ATK mapping analysis yet?
